Truck or Treat!” It’s the final Food Truck Thursday of 2014. This “spooktacular” event falls the day before Halloween and all little trick-or-treaters and their families are invited out for an evening of good food and Halloween fun! The event begins at 5 p.m.

Attendees are invited to put the pots and pans away and come out to Brook Run Park to enjoy a fun evening out and feast on some of the best food truck cuisine in Atlanta. This family foodie event, complete with live music, will also feature a frighteningly fun costume contest broken into 4 (four) categories: Children aged 0-5, Children aged 6-12, Best Family (Group), and Best Adult Costume. Great giveaways will be handed out, and the night’s sponsor UFC Gym will award prizes. Children in costume (ages 1-12) can trick-or-treat from truck to truck and at each of the sponsor booths to collect sweet treats.
